English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. immerse

    Dip is Saxon, while immerse is Latin for the same initial act; dip is accordingly the more popular and commonplace, immerse the more elegant and dignified expression in many cases. To speak of baptism by immersion as dipping now seems rude; tho entirely proper and usual in early English. Baptists now universally use the word immerse. To dip and to immerse alike signify to bury or submerge some object in a liquid; but dip implies that the object dipped is at once removed from the liquid, while immerse is wholly silent as to the removal. Immerse also suggests more absolute completeness of the action; one may dip his sleeve or dip a sponge in a liquid, if he but touches the edge; if he immerses it, he completely sinks it under, and covers it with the liquid. Submerge implies that the object can not readily be removed, if at all; as, a submerged wreck. To plunge is to immerse suddenly and violently, for which douse and duck are colloquial terms. Dip is used, also, unlike the other words, to denote the putting of a hollow vessel into a liquid in order to remove a portion of it; in this sense we say dip up, dip out. Compare synonyms for BURY.

    Synonyms:
    bury, dip, douse, duck, immerge, plunge, sink, submerge

    The only way to find your self is to first lose yourself. Lose yourself to all worldly affairs, immerse yourself in the deepest oceans of material world - until the special moment of awakening, a pre-destined call that everyone receives at some stage in life. From that moment onwards, onsets the process of self-realization and your journey on the path to illumination. And thus you find your self, only after losing yourself in the jungle of materialistic world.
